The Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation announced today that Shamil Magomedov was forced to withdraw from his flyweight fight against fellow Sambo Champion Marko Kosev (2-1) on June 7. Magomedov suffered a back injury while training for the RUFF FU fight card. Replacing him will be Sanda specialist Hexigetu (1-1) who was scheduled to fight earlier on the same card, but welcomed the change in opponent.
Replacing Hexigetu in the opening fight at RUFF FU against young and undefeated Yang Jianbing (2-0-0-1NC) will be Sanda Specialist and RUFF newcomer Wu Ze (0-0) who is stepping up on just over two weeks notice.
Rasul Khairulaev was also forced to withdraw from his lightweight RUFF FU bout against Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu (3-2) due to a last minute obligation coming up with the Russian military. Replacing him will be Russian striker Alexey Makhno (4-2).
